The Old Guard 2 , sequel to Gina Prince-Bythewood’s filmbased on Greg Rucka ‘s comic of the same name , does not yet have a release date but there may already be a third film in the works.
This was confirmed by producer Marc Evans at the premiere of The Mother , the Netflix film with Jennifer Lopez .
The ending of the second film refers to the third and that makes me very happy.
The producer also added that the protagonist of the saga Charlize Theron is also a producer and as such supports the franchise very much. That’s all for the moment, as always we will keep you updated on every development.
The synopsis of the first film
For centuries, the mortal world has been protected by a clandestine group led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron). Inside there are mercenaries who are very close to each other and who strangely cannot die. During an urgent mission, the team members’ extraordinary abilities suddenly become public. Now it’s up to Andy and the newcomer Nile (Kiki Layne) to help the team avert the danger posed by those who, at any price, intend to replicate and exploit this gift economically. Based on the acclaimed comic by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, THE OLD GUARD tells a gritty, grounded in reality and action-packed story that proves that living forever isn’t such a simple matter.
In the finale of the first chapter we discovered that Quynh is still alive, and has contacted Booker in Paris. The latter was exiled from the group for one hundred years, as punishment for betraying him. We can imagine that the story of the sequel will start from here.
It stars Charlize Theron as Andromache of Scythia , leader of a group of immortal warriors who have lived on Earth for millennia, fighting the battles of each generation. Luca Marinelli is also part of the team , whose talent increasingly attracts the attention of international productions. The Roman actor plays Nicolò da Genova , an Italian crusader who is now in a relationship with an old adversary, Yusuf Al-Kaysani (the Marwan Kenzari from Aladdin ), who is also in the group. Matthias Schoenaerts is instead Sebastian le Livre , a former Napoleonic soldier, while Kiki Laynelends his face to the last “recruit” of the guard: Nile Freeman , an American marine who comes back to life after being killed in action, thus discovering that he is immortal in turn. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Copley , a CIA agent. Uma Thurman and Henry Golding
will also be in the sequel .
Victoria Mahoney directed the second film. She picks up the baton from Gina Prince-Bythewood , who directed The Woman King in the meantime (but she stayed on as producer).
